Most toxins including heavy metals, stockpile themselves in the tissues including brain and neurons, cell membranes and organs.

Removing these toxins can considerably contribute to recovering health on many levels. Also deficiency in nutrient elements can be noted, such as zinc, copper, magnesium, chromium, and selenium.

Essential Mineral Elements and Toxic Metal Urine Test

Most toxins, heavy metals included, store themselves in the tissues.  Stored toxins do circulate in the blood or urine in larger amounts that can indicate a problem.  To get a clear picture of the body burden, we “challenge” body.  This challenge is done by giving the body what would be required to remove the toxins, and THEN collecting the urine.  This is a highly elaborate test. Toxic metals compete in the body heavily with essential minerals and cause a breakdown of physiological systems including endocrine, mental health, immune disorders and systemic issues. Their removal can greatly contribute to re-establishing health.  Nutrient elements including zinc, magnesium, copper, selenium, and chromium are mandatory co-factors for several hundreds of essential enzymes and are also important for the regular functions of vitamins.  Mineral deficiencies can contribute to many if not most health problems.
